Three Smart Choices For One-Level Living At Landsdale

One of the biggest home design trends in recent years is the first-floor owner’s suite. Historically, this product has been most popular with empty nesters looking for smaller active living space without stairs and additional upstairs space for guests. Today, more and more younger families are opting for this style of home as well, as it provides a more flexible living environment with easier access to primary living spaces, added privacy and separation, and plenty of room for everyone to spread out comfortably.

Ultimately, the decision to select a home with a first-floor owner’s suite is personal. That is why Landsdale is offering homeowners three new and diverse one-level living floorplans to choose from.

Landsdale FrederickThe Foster, by Ryan Homes, offers the convenience of one-level living while still having the space of a two-story home. It features a luxurious private owner’s suite, lavish owner’s bathroom and huge walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,374+ square feet. The foyer and fo  rmal dining room give a feeling of openness and light, flowing seamlessly into the open kitchen and spacious great room with a large center island and dinette, both perfect for entertaining or simply spending time together as a family.

 

Lennar BonningtonThe Bonnington, by Lennar, expertly blends the need for space with the desire for efficiency. This beautiful two-story home features a deluxe first-floor owner’s suite with spa-like bathroom and super shower, three secondary bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,892+ square feet. A library is adjacent to the formal dining room and the entry hall leads into the open concept gourmet kitchen with large breakfast nook and a great room with vaulted ceiling, ideal for an open, easy flow while hosting parties or family gatherings.

 

Winchester Homes Williamsport ModelThe Williamsport, by Winchester Homes, features single-level “ranch-style” living in an open and inviting floor plan including a large owner’s suite, two generous secondary bedrooms, two to three baths, a two-car garage and 2,440+ square feet. At the front of the home, the foyer is flanked by a formal living room and dining room, while to the rear, you’ll find the family room and an expansive kitchen that’s perfect for casual get-togethers with family and friends. The lower level is a blank canvas that can be customized to match your lifestyle needs.

The options to personalize these exquisite home designs are endless. Whether you are seeking additional bedrooms or bathrooms for your growing family and guests; flex spaces like a sunroom, finished recreation room, or home office; or additional features and upgrades – we can meet your needs and help you build the perfect home to complement the way you live.

At Landsdale, you really can have it all – the home you want in a resort-style community with the perfect location. Live the lifestyle you been dreaming of! Request more information, or schedule a visit to Landsdale today.

Maryland First Time Home Buyer Credit.

Choosing to purchase a home is one of the smartest and biggest decisions of your life. It takes a lot of time and commitment to navigate the complex purchase process. There are a number of things you can do to save money on your new home.

First Time Home Buyer Programs in Maryland

Many non-profit organizations offer down payment assistance programs to first time homebuyers in Maryland. Some cities and counties even offer a Mortgage Credit Certificate or MCC. An MCC is a federal tax credit program for first time homebuyers.

When purchasing your first home, it’s extremely important that you learn all that you can about the home buying process and the programs available to help you.

Maryland HomeCredit

A Maryland HomeCredit can save you tens of thousands of dollars throughout the life of your loan. When combined with a home loan through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Mortgage Program, purchasing your first home in Maryland has never been easier! The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development offers down payment assistance as well as a 30-year fixed interest rate.

The Maryland HomeCredit doesn’t save you money on the purchase of your home. Instead, it provides eligible homeowners with a federal tax credit that reduces the federal tax liability owed. The value of this tax credit is 25% of the value of mortgage payments up to $2000. This credit can be claimed every year that you own your home.

Eligible homeowners can apply for a Maryland HomeCredit through an approved mortgage lender. In order to be eligible, the home you purchase must be in Maryland and you must meet the income requirements and home purchase price limits set by the Maryland Mortgage Program. Also, the home you purchase must be your primary residence and you cannot have owned a home within the past three years.

backyard upgrade

Best Upgrades for Your Backyard for Spring.

There’s nothing quite like the warmer weather of spring to encourage us to spend more time outdoors. Many residents in Frederick have already begun having afternoon get-togethers and evening cookouts. If you want to make your outdoor living space the perfect getaway for spring, you might want to consider the following upgrades.

Add a Fire Pit

Fire pits bring friends and family together and extend the outdoor season. A backyard fire pit can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. There are many shapes and sizes available or instructions can be found online for creating your own. If space is an issue, a table-top fire pit can provide warmth and comfort.

Upgrade Patio Furniture

The wrong patio furniture can make it difficult to entertain in the spring. Patio furniture has come a long way since the days of picnic tables and plastic chairs. Newer designs make it possible to create a living room-type space outdoors. Consider upgrading patio furniture with a new dining table and chairs. Choose pieces that are durable and easy to clean.

Light Your Landscape

The right backyard lighting can create a beautiful and functional outdoor living space. Landscape lighting allows you to spend more time outdoors. It also provides an added sense of security and can be used to highlight features of your landscape.

Add a Water Feature

A water feature is a wonderful addition to any outdoor living space. In addition to looking great, the sound of moving water can create a sense of peace and tranquility. Backyard water features include fountains and water gardens of all shapes and sizes.

Add Potted Plants and Flowers

Potted plants and flowers can add beauty and texture to your backyard. Add seasonal colors by adding as many potted plants and container gardens as you can comfortably fit on your patio. For the best effect, choose a variety of colors and greenery.

Landsdale is excited to celebrate spring with our residents! We can’t wait to see how you spruce up your backyard this spring.

New Construction Homebuyers Resources

Purchasing a new home is an exciting time. However, it can be daunting as well. Buying a new construction home is a little different than purchasing a resale home. When buying a new house, you will need to understand a few things about the home buying process. With a little time and knowledge you can have the new home of your dreams.

Buying a New Construction Home

Many prospective homebuyers are disappointed by the selection of homes in their target area. It’s not uncommon to find homes that simply don’t meet a family's needs or expectations. They’re either too small, outdated or lack storage space. Whatever the reason, resale homes often fall short. That is why buying a new construction home is the best option for homebuyers today.

When you purchase a new construction home, you get to control various aspects of its layout and design elements. This might include adding extra bedrooms or bathrooms and upgrading flooring and countertops. When you buy new construction, you buy directly from the home builder.

Choosing your community

Before buying a new home, make sure that you understand the neighborhood’s details and future plans. This can help you determine if the community is right for you. Researching the home builder is equally important. Make sure that you choose a respectable developer with a proven track record.

Determine how much you can reasonably spend on your new home. Keep in mind that there will be additional costs involved including property taxes, closing costs, homeowners insurance, maintenance, repair costs and more.

Amenities and features

It’s important to understand what’s included with the home and what is not. Before buying, you will probably look at a model home. Keep in mind that model homes are typically full of upgrades and amenities. This is so that the builder can show you what is possible in your new home. Ask questions and determine which upgrades are most important to you and which ones you can live without.

Buying a new construction home doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it might end up being the best decision you ever make.
